Everett's baptism

This Sunday was Everett's baptism. I scheduled it after our regular service. Unfortunately, E doesn't love church. He is not a fan of the organ, and there is a lot of organ in a Catholic service. So we spend a lot of time walking around and hanging with other kids in the cry room. It's not that he is crying really, just on the verge.....a lot.

Because of this, I was worried that by the time his baptism started he would be so stressed and tired that it would go horribly wrong. 

Silly me. 

This kid is awesome. He LOVED his baptism. He stared and stared at the deacon the entire time. I think he liked his voice. He didn't mind the pouring of the water any more than just a little flinch. And, he even let the deacon take him, walk to the altar, bow and come back. All by himself!

Adoring grandmothers

Good-looking grandfathers

Note the beginning of the staring

And the staring

Stayed calm through the water 

Just hanging on to daddy's tie

Being good for his new friend 

Love this shot

This picture melts my heart. 

E definitely made a new friend.

I think he might have wanted to do it all again!

He rocked his daddy's baptism outfit, but I'm glad we didn't wait another week. It barely fit!

Love getting love on such a nice day.
